Interesting when a practicing EE parses the schematics and makes a comment he/she is usually ignored. The Otala amps are nice why they do what they do is obvious. For one thing the overbias in the OS can not be ignored (IIRC far beyond the "Oliver" point).

Its simply a matter of available time and not to ignore.

I stick with my opinion based on listening experiences.

The open loop amps sounded superior , no question about it.

The samples auditioned happened to be class-a.

I threw them together to see if there was anything worth pursuing.

Although an excellent sound and I could have proceeded to develop Pass type BUT that waste heat is a show stopper. That was 11 years ago.

Enter the tpa311x , now that is a real game changer. (disruptive technology)

The stuff like low open-bw over and over, Bob Cordell, I, and others have addressed this numerous times and it keeps coming back. It wasn't aimed at you, but you were responding to a comment where a simple look at the circuit would have yielded the answer.

Mr. W was referring to post 18905 by Mr. Martin (the consensual EE)
